We are very proud of the wonderful reviews parents have submitted about our nursery.  Visit our Day Nurseries page to read more reviews and ratings.

My son has settled in amazingly and has a really good bond with certain members of staff, His speech and his learning has come on leaps and bounds. Well done ladies.

The staff at Holyrood are always cheerful and welcoming. They go above and beyond to make sure my son is happy and feels safe at nursery. I really value the influence they have on my child's learning and development.

Amazing nursery, helpful and very friendly. Sent two of my children here and they love it. Thank you.

I have found the nursery a brilliant environment for my child and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

We have put both our young daughters in Holyrood and we have always been extremely pleased with the care they have received. I think the biggest compliment we can give Holyrood is that when we drop the girls off we don't have a moments worry for the rest of the day that they're being anything other than wonderfully cared for.

Holyrood, Prestwich is a fantastic and very inclusive nursery. My daughter has additional needs and they are excellent at supporting her and including her in activities. All the staff are great, especially my daughter's key worker who is very approachable, conscientious and lovely with my daughter.

My son has been attending Holyrood for 2 years and we have seen him become more and more sociable since he started. They've helped him increase his confidence in so many ways and we've been so happy with all the support we've been given as a family.

Dear families,

We are pleased to share with you our exciting plans for the future of our nurseries. Bertram Nursery Group has provided a trusted, caring and quality service to thousands of families over two decades.  That isn’t changing, but we want to grow and develop our services, facilities and, most of all, our teams who make our nurseries and kindergartens such inspiring places for children.

That’s why we’re changing our name to Thrive Childcare and Education, because that’s at the heart of what we’re about – helping our children, staff and communities to thrive.

While changing our company name and the names of some of our nurseries is the next step of our development journey, we’ll still have the same dedicated teams caring for your children.

The Covid-19 pandemic has reinforced our belief that we need to adapt and invest in a constantly changing world to continue providing the service that parents and children need, tailored to the communities we support across Scotland and North West England.

Since our foundation, we have acquired some fantastic groups of nurseries and many high-quality independent nurseries. Now we are uniting them under four Thrive groupings:

  • Happitots nurseries will extend beyond Glasgow and South Lanarkshire to provide a network of affordable, flexible nurseries across Scotland.
  • Holyrood nurseries will extend more widely across our network of affordable nurseries in North West England, recognising parents’ and community needs.
  • Corner House nurseries will now extend from Edinburgh to operate more widely across Scotland, providing an extensive range of exciting, extracurricular activities and large outdoor areas.
  • Nature Kindergartens, our new sub-group, will reflect our vision to develop children’s outdoor learning. We plan to expand our Nature Kindergartens network in Scotland and England because we believe children’s learning is greatly enhanced in natural spaces.
